You can cover much more distance with a boxing jab
List of TKD punches include: hook, jab, cross, uppercut. Ring a bell?
Even in a limited/no rules fight, your hands are still your main weapons. Best know how to throw them with effectively.
Anyone can punch, not everyone can box. There is a difference.
Go learn to box if you want. Just don't go in thinking you can beat boxers with having no boxing training. You're like those people that show up and train for a month and then quit once the sparring gets tough because they don't like being beat.
Do you have some sparring videos of yourself? Link? I would like to see.
How about you show up and spar their best fighters, on the first visit. Tell them to videotape it and put it on here for us.
I can't wait.
I heartily recommend checking his started threads (although some of his posts in the grappling forum take the cake). It's.... spacetime. I'm not sure why people are bothering to give him legit answers at this point.
LOL, disregard the above, finished reading the thread and got a good laugh out of it.
I doubt it. If you have done TKD, you have already seen the main boxing punches.
You could add double tiger claw technique though, and do finger strengthening
Why would I do that when I wrote that I would beat their worst? You know, the opposite of what you wrote.
Is there any good clip of a typical training session in boxing?
I boxed for 2 years, grappled for 9. Boxing is the reason I feel confident in a street fight. The basics teach you ABSOLUTE CONTROL of distance. You learn when you can be hit, and when you're safe. It's an amazing tool that gives you so much control in altercations. The grappling part helps as well in case I fall ,or just wanna clinch up and finish. Really all you need is a decent jab. Once people get popped their intesity drains. From there you can usually talk em down.
The one problem with boxing though.... Kicks, kicks make everything change. Luckily untrained shitheads won't be able to throw a kick worth shit.
Layers. A good boxing gym will open your eyes to all the layers of competence, just like a BJJ gym, wrestling room, etc. Hence the challenge of MMA.
Hells no, Boxing trainers are hacks.
If you already know all 4 punches I don't see what you could possibly learn. It's TKD minus kicks, really
Beyond improving the punches I already know, won't I see a dramatic increase in my physique? Boxings physical conditioning is second to none, from what I've read.
That's from jumprope. Did you jumprope in TKD? You may not see any increase in physique
Yes we did do that on occasion, but not anymore. I can do 50 push ups maximum if I get my own time to do them,. Heard thats nothing for a daily session in boxing, and that I would never survive it. It sounds like a fun challenge.
This is the conditioning in TKD: push ups 30, 20, 10. Sit-ups: 50.(may do 50 more later in the session). Leg and stomach excersises ( 30 repetitions), and a few typical military drills, lying on the floor keeping the feet up in the air for 1 minute, stuff like that. But it's really not challenging if you train regularly.
